And, my favorite, the infamous jug-run!
The team is currently ranked #15th in tournament rankings and #16 for duals. Not a bad place to start the climb! In just over a week we will head to Fargo, ND to take on the Bison of North Dakota State in our first competition of the year. That match with take place on 11/4. This will be a great opportunity for team to showcase the gains they have made throughout the off-season.
Next, Wildcat Wrestling will return home to kick off an extremely impressive home schedule. I would even go as far as to say that this year’s home schedule is the best in the history of the program! Your ‘Cats will host Penn State, Ohio State, Iowa, Virginia Tech, Illinois and Minnesota. These teams finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 13th and 17th at last year’s NCAA tournament. All of these matches will take place in the new and greatly improved Welsh Ryan Arena. I promise you will be thoroughly impressed with both the level of competition and the new home of Northwestern Wrestling.
